Alternative PHP Cache, or APC, is a module for Apache servers that is used to cache the output code of script apps. It is very useful for scripts with large source code and can speed up such a website up to 3 times. PHP sites are dynamic and any time a visitor opens some page, the script connects to a database in order to retrieve some content, and then the code is parsed and compiled prior to it being shown to the visitor. If the output code doesn't change however, that's the case with websites that display the same content at all times, such actions trigger unnecessary reading and writing. What APC does is that it caches the already compiled program code and delivers it every time visitors browse a website, so the database does not need to be accessed and the code doesn't need to be parsed and compiled continuously, which in turn lowers the website loading time. The module can be pretty effective for informational Internet sites, blogs, portfolios, and many others.
APC (PHP Opcode Cache) in Shared Hosting
APC is pre-installed on our advanced cloud platform, so you will be able to use it for your applications regardless of the shared hosting plan that you pick when you sign up. The module can be enabled through the Hepsia internet hosting Control Panel which is used to handle the shared accounts and only several minutes later it'll boost your sites as it'll start caching their program code. If you need to run sites with different system requirements or use different web accelerators for some of them, you could customize the software environment by placing a php.ini file in the preferred domain folder. Thus, you can enable or disable APC not only for a specific website without affecting the other websites in the account, but also for a particular version of PHP since our platform is compatible with multiple versions at the same time.
